A Common Trends Model: Identification, Estimation and Inference
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Institute for International Economic Studies.
1993 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Common trends models provide a useful tool for studying growth and business cycle phenomena in a joint framework (see King, Plosser, Stock and Watson (1991)). In this paper we study the problem of how to estimate and analyse a common stochastic trends model for an n dimensional time series which is cointegrated of order (1,1) with r < n cointegration vectors. Identification of k = n - r permanent (trend) and r transitory innovations is discussed in terms of impulse responses and variance decompositions. Finally, we derive analytical expressions of the asymptotic distributions for estimates of these functions, thereby making formal hypothesis testing and inference possible within this framework.
